Virat Kohli faced disappointment in India’s semi-final against England in the 2024 T20 World Cup, getting out on a single-digit score for the fifth time in the tournament. His run-a-ball 9 against England added to his tally of just 75 runs in seven innings.

After Kohli’s dismissal, a viral video captured him in a somber moment, consoled by Team India head coach Rahul Dravid. Kohli, visibly disappointed, was dismissed by his IPL teammate Reece Topley.

In the video, Kohli sits between Jasprit Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja, reflecting deeply on the match. Rahul Dravid’s attempt to uplift Kohli’s spirits was evident.

Despite his recent struggles, Kohli remains a beloved figure among Indian fans on social media. Messages of support flooded platforms like X, with fans urging Kohli to stay positive and promising victory.

Following his impressive performance in IPL 2024, where he won the Orange Cap, Kohli’s form in the T20 World Cup has been lackluster, failing to score a fifty with his best being a 37 against Bangladesh.

At 35, this T20 World Cup might mark Kohli’s final appearance in the tournament. In contrast, his opening partner and India captain Rohit Sharma has shone brightly, scoring a pivotal 92 against Australia after an initial fifty against Ireland.

Despite Kohli’s dip in form, Team India has found support in players like Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, and Shivam Dube, all contributing crucial performances.

Post the World Cup, Kohli’s absence is notable as he has not been included in India’s squad for the upcoming T20I series in Zimbabwe, signaling a transitional phase for the team.
